Get Lucky TV has now been added to 235 and Going Places TV has been removed from 669 in the EPG.

I checked out the Test broadcast for Get Lucky last night and lo and behold if it wasn't taking the feed from the fabulous Babestation 2. Now when I'm bored watching on Hollywood TV, I can switch to Wrestling Channel for more action and then switch to Get Lucky when my finger starts twitching. Aren't we blessed, I suscribed to sky for multi-channel TV not simu-broadcast TV.
This is a pathetic waste of bandwidth and as for the poor sops that actually watch and text in at £1.50 a shot - well, don't get me started.

This channel is showing the same film throughout the whole day, with a few hours of texting thrown in at primetime.

Hollywood/Wrestling/GetLucky are free channels, so your Sky subscription doesn't fund these channels in any way.

Avago, Game In TV, I-Sports TV, Nation217 AND now Get Lucky TV all use the same interactive screens, just with that channel's logo at the top.

Anyone know if these channels are in some way "linked"?

On the subject of a logo , somebody must have told them they needed a DOG. In this case they have taken it literally and came up with this very annoying distraction in the top right-hand corner of the screen.

Same film all day, well try all week. How can they broadcast a new channel with only one film. Get lucky, Nah unlucky for them, no one will watch this utter trash.

I've told this story before but it appropriate for this new channel. There was an episode of the good old TV series " The Goodies" where they set up a pirate radio station . The only trouble with the scheme was that they only had one record in their collection - " A Walk in the Black Forest" . This they played over and over again. This is just like this new TV channel , showing the same film over and over again.

you're obviously all wrong. The website says

A brand new, vibrant and exciting interactive channel.

Tune in every day to Sky channel 235 and
you too could have a chance to get lucky.

so therefore it really is exciting and vibrant - because they say

Get Lucky TV broadcasts in Spain for more than a year, they use the same dog logo so presumably itís the same company behind them. Their programming consisted of texting all day with seductoras.tv from 00:00-07:00 spanish version of babestation but less explicit and with much better looking girls (some of whom even claimed they were english) I wouldn't mind seeing them over here

Recently coinciding with UK launch of Get Lucky TV they dropped all of their programming apart from seductoras.tv at night.

They are linked through the Digital TV Group, although I feel that Nation 217 is getting better and finally differentiating itself from Avago through a new interactive screen with content that goes with the channel

They currently have the option to enter the on screen competitions, play from a selection of 4 interactive games (ala Sky Gamestar/PlayJam etc) which is promised to grow, bet (yawn), and get mobile content (another yawn)

At least they're separating themselves from Avago. Personally the only one of these channes which I watch is N217 - the others are just p*ss poor - Nation has that entertainment quality to it - and I've won about £300
